Dr. Isabel Hubbard's research focuses on evaluating and improving speech-language interventions for people with neurodegenerative disease and survivors of stroke. She has conducted clinical research in acute care, outpatient, and research centers. She completed her Ph.D. at the University of South Carolina working with individuals with aphasia secondary to stroke. Dr. Hubbard completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of California San Francisco where she focused on speech and language treatments for individuals with primary progressive aphasia. She completed an additional postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Alberta where she began incorporating elements of each of these experiences to direct her research focus incorporating the role of presbycusis in those with chronic injury or dementia. Dr. Hubbard is currently an assistant professor at the University of Kentucky where she is investigating the role hearing loss in speech-language outcomes for those with cognitive decline or chronic injury and addressing potentially unmet needs of those with presbycusis in the presence of existing cognitive or speech-language impairment. She uses neuroimaging and eye-tracking technologies to evaluate treatment approaches and improve functional and psychosocial outcomes for her patients.
